Very nice picture and sound on this great old Kinescope fifties relic! I remember watching the Howdy Doody show live back in those days, so that likely dates me as ancient. Easy, pleasant, nostalgic, fun viewing. Gee, I wonder if that keen Howdy Doody Mystery Periscope is still available for 25 cents and a Halo Shampoo boxtop?
